"She's toured every corner of the earth with some of the music world's most PRIZED POSSESSIONS. He's toured the country in Hamilton and is now sittin' pretty on Broadway in Hamilton. Together, they gave the cast of Godspell HOURS of laughs with a bit about how they were once together and had a child named Essence. Julia Mattison took their brilliance and threw some tinsel on it in this video from Julia's Christmas 2011 Christmas show. Enjoy this hilarious and mostly improvised performance by two of my favorite people: Celisse Henderson and Wallace Smith!"
